    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Mononucleosis,infectious/epstein-barr Virus



Hi To All

I was looking at the boxes of paper i have kept, since i have dealing with the VA. i decided to look at what i could put in the garbage. i came across some pages from my service medical records, as i was looking at the page i realized i was diagnosed with Infectious Mononucleosis, Mono is an infection caused by the Epstien-Barr virus, some call it the Kissing disease, i look it up on google and long term effects, i was diagnosed on 18/Oct/1969, i was in Korea at the time. one of the long term effects is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, i was diagnosed with CFS about 14 months ago on a va exam. I have been complaining for years in the service and after i retired with swollen lymph nodes in my underarms and my groin, i was told by the doctors that maybe i was pulling the hair under my arms to hard when i took showers, that did not make any sence to me. This has happened to me twice in the past month, but lasted only about two days, when it happens i get a high fever and fatigue, sore muscles headaches, feel like crap. In OCT of last year i was put in th hospital for five days with a chronic infection, same symptoms, fatigue,fever,sore throat, sore muscles, skin rash, red speckles around my ankles and on the inside of my arms, headeaches, and swollen lymph nodes in my underarmes. the doctor could not figured out what kind of infection i had, i could not eat i felt so sick, they did not give me any antibiotic, the doctor sid that antibiotic would not help just rest and dring plenty of water,juice and rest, after i got out of the hospital i had to stay in bed for two weeks, i just did not have any energy. on my release paper from the hospital it states on diagnosis, Infection unknow. other side effects on Mono are large liver and spleen, you have to avoid sports for a month you are better.

One of the studies i saw on google is that it is rear to get a mono set back, but it may happen when you get older. it also can cause certain cancer later in life, in the brain,throat neck,

If anyone out there ever had this,please contact me, because the doctors here don't know what the hell is going on.

Appreceiate all replys.
